Couchbike Story in Adventure Cyclist Magazine

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007
The story of my couchbike adventure has been published in the June 2007 issue of Adventure Cyclist Magazine, the one bicycling magazine truly dedicated to bicycle adventure.

I like the layout of this one.  They used a number of never before published photos from the trip.

If you’re already a member of the Adventure Cycling Association, you can look for the magazine in your mail box.  Otherwise, it’s worth checking out their site at: http://www.adv-cycling.org/

Bicycle Forest Toronto Location?

Monday, June 25th, 2007

This weekend, I checked out some empty shop space in Toronto.  The space is located between the Beaches and Leslieville, just a couple of blocks from the lake.

New Shop Space

The main floor is 750 square feet.  I tried to imagine how various rental bikes might fit in the room.  Unfortunately, the following image is unrealistic as the pickup truck bike would never fit through the 36″ door.  The Couchbike could be assembled inside, but it would have to be disassembled to fit back through the door as well.

I never imagined that I would ever live in Toronto, but this is certainly a nice part of town.  There’s lots to think about here.  Decisions, decisions.
